So we've all heard of Paris Hilton, but have you heard of Senya Sobchak? Hala Gorani has more on this Russian phenom.
This girl has almost nothing in common with Paris Hilton, which is a compliment to Senya.
Lol, CNN can't even get the name right!. It's Kseniya Sobchak.
She's beautiful and smart. So how is she like Paris Hilton?
This woman sounds NOTHING like Paris Hilton. Paris Hilton is far below this woman on a level of intelligence and other things
This young lady is nothing like Paris Hilton. Paris is all about promoting herself, while this woman is using her fame to get a message out that she feels would benefit others. No comparison...sorry.
Seriously; this girl has nothing in common with Paris Hilton. CNN you should be ashamed of yourselves for publishing this.
She is obviously a lot more intelligent and productive than Paris Hilton. No comparison at all. Paris is a drunken waste of breath.
She has money & is blonde, this is all she has in common with Paris HIlton.
Our Paris is hotter!
Isn't is "Ksenia Sobchak"?
This girl is productive and intelligent, and people like her. Nobody likes Hilton.
I'm proud of Ms. Sobchak. She is actually concerned about her country and where its headed, and she uses her popularity to help the opposition. She's an activist, Paris is an embarrassment.
I am not trying to be deliberately cruel but I have to agree that CNN botched this one royally. Calling someone the "Paris Hilton" of any nation does not paint a pretty picture. They need to use another point of reference when they want to praise someone. BTW she was actually referred to as the "Oprah" of Russia.
CNN, please give this woman a little more credit.
shes intelligent and earning her money. paris is the opposite.
How in the hell do you compare this woman to Paris Hilton?!!!!
For some reason it looks like the americans are trying to pay her to do this, I guess it'll all blow up on the USs face soon.
as usual, a bunch of haters in the comment section at CNN. I see a lot of similarities – they are both someone who love to be front and center, love fashion, both do reality tv – there were others. To me the biggest difference is that our Paris has that special quality of panache and "je ne sais quoi" that we love her for. Yes, love. My fellow American, Paris Hilton, with all her ups and downs, mistakes and successes – I'll defend her first before a Russian stranger.
Ms. Hilton should be flattered to find herself compared to this woman.
There is absolutely NO comparison even in the slightest except that both are female.Paris is a spoiled, trampy, offspring of money and has done NOTHING to improve this world. Senya on the other hand, is at least doing something positive with her life and her money. It would be an insult for me if I was Senya and compared to Paris. No way. And for the Paris defenders who will ask, "O.K. what have YOU done?" Well, I risked it all for my country, my fellow American citizens and to this very day, help the less fortunate.
I'll take both of them, please.
She simply can not be compared to Paris Hilton. She seems to have a mind of her own and a motive to follow unlike Hilton.
Dear CNN, the name of the Russian Start is Ksenya, with the K
